    MIRROR REPORTERS

    SOUTHERN REGION – There are mixed feelings on the late former President Mugabe’s death with many people from the Southern Region who spoke to The Mirror saying that Mugabe destroyed his legacy and the people’s love for him.
    Those who spoke to The Mirror in interviews said there are few people who were moved by the death of Mugabe. They said his death rank lowly in terms of evoking people’s emotions compared to the death of the likes of Morgan Tsvangirai, Joshua Nkomo, Eddison Zvobgo and Oliver Mtukudzi.
    They said that the few people who lined the streets to wave  Mugabe’s body goodbye from the airport, the few who were at the airport or even cried showed that Mugabe was a hated man.
    MDC Midlands Province spokesperson, Takavafira Zhou said Mugbe started off well but destroyed his legacy through violence, corruption, dictatorship and a failed economy.
    “This country should have shut down over Mugabe’s death but there is a lot of indifference. People don’t care. His funeral is like that of an ordinary man. Mugabe trashed his legacy towards the end of his rule,” said Zhou.
    Bishop Lyphet Matenda Mugaviri of the Zion Christian Church said Mugabe was a hero who promoted indigenous churches.
    Zanu PF spokesperson for Masvingo Province, Ronald Ndava said that the nation had lost an icon who built the education sector in Zimbabwe and made it second to none in Africa.
    Ndava hailed Mugabe’s land reform programme which he said gave land back to the blacks.
    Alois Baloyi in Chiredzi said hundreds of busses were available for those who want to pay their last respects to Mugabe. He however, said that he was not yet aware of the burial day.
    A Masvingo lawyer who declined to be named said that the country was better off without Mugabe.
    Zanu PF chair for Chivhu Rangarirai Matonho declined to comment.
